Day 13 – I’m getting a little nervous.09/21/2009
I’m getting a little nervous. In two days I weigh in. It’s really my first Wednesday-to-Wednesday weigh in. My Calorie Budget has been right on target but there is always something more that I could do. My mindset has changed significantly but I’m sure those numbers will have a considerable impact on my motivation. In the past certain results have thrown me into a tailspin. My emotional reactions to the scale are pretty predictable when I look at my history. Results have always led me to stopping what I’ve started. So I would just ignore the scale, healthy food and my size all together and resign that I couldn’t loose weight.
But not this time!
I’m in new territory now. The scale will log results but I will do everything I can to stay in the game. I will step off the scale and keep on keeping on! It’s not about numbers this time it’s about a mind body change. It’s about life and I’m going to enjoy it.
So isn’t it fitting that this Wednesday is exactly 100 days until the New Year? To help motivate this community South Beach Steve of Log My Loss has launched a challenge called, “The Hot 100 – Going Out With a Bang!” contest. The conest is about setting goals and following through to the end of the year. It’ll be a great way to set small goals and maybe win a jar of Steve’s AWESOME smoked, sweet & sour, pickled jalapenos.

If nothing else it will be a fun way to focus on setting goals and keeping my mind off the scale.
